WCHA Final Five Tickets

Hey hockey fans! Guess what! Ticket King has just added and priced our WCHA Final Five tickets! We have some great seats for both the womens and mens tournament. If you've never been to one of these, I hear the WCHA is a very fun and exciting tournament! I can imagine it is, being that hockey is such an aggressive and competitive sport. Please do keep in mind that if the Minnesota Gophers do well this year, we will have to raise ticket prices. They are currently very reasonably priced but we don't have a ton of tickets either. I would suggest getting yours today while the availability is at it's best and the prices are at their lowest! GO GOPHERS!

Ticket King is Poppin!

This is a picture of the newest addition to the Ticket King Minneapolis office- a popcorn maker! We thought it would be a good idea to get one so we can give popcorn away during Vikings games and also just to have around the office. We tried it today and it tastes just like it does at the movie theater.

Be sure to stop by before the Vikings game to get your popcorn and your tickets to the game! Ticket King is your one-stop shop!

Vikings vs. Seahawks Tickets

The Minnesota Vikings will be playing the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, November 22nd for their 5th home game of the regular season. This game has been pretty popular so far so I wanted to remind you that ticket prices may be increasing if the Vikings continue on their winning streak! Ticket King currently has Vikings tickets for this game starting at only $35 each for upper level tickets and $100 each for lower levels. If you're looking for cheap tickets, you've found the source!

Get your Vikings football tickets today before the good ones are gone!

Ticket King currently has Gopher tickets starting at just $155 for upper level tickets or $175 for lower levels. These are going pretty quickly since the ticket price has lowered since the start of the season. I would suggest getting your tickets today before the good ones are gone because this game is going to be HUGE!

Minnesota Twins Metrodome Tickets

The Minnesota Twins will begin their last home series in the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome this weekend. It will be the last series to EVER be played in the Metrodome by the Twinkies! On Friday, October 2nd, the Twins will host the Kansas City Royals for one of the last times at the dome. This game, along with Saturday's and Sunday's games, will definitely sell out completely! We're already running low on our remaining Twins tickets for this series- especially Friday's game. If you would like to see one of the last Twins games to ever be played at the Metrodome, get your tickets now before they're gone! And GO TWINS!!!!!

As I mentioned though, our tickets are going quickly so act NOW and get them while you still can!

Vikings vs. Packers Tickets

Here at Ticket King Minneapolis, we are eagerly awaiting the Vikings Vs. Packers game on October 5th! Not only is the game a home Monday night football game, but the Vikings game is against the PACKERS, which is already a high profile game every year. With the Vikings starting the season with 3 wins and no loses, the tickets have been flying out of our store faster than we can buy more tickets in! This means you should buy your tickets for the Vikings and Packers game on Monday before it’s too late!

Vikings Vs. Packers Tickets for the Monday night football game are starting at $130 each in the upper level, and Ticket King has different price ranges going up to $795 each in the lower level. The Ticket King Minneapolis office, located at 212 Chicago Ave S has been busy with tons of customers picking up their tickets. A lot of customers get excited to have the tickets they ordered for the Vikings Vs. Packers game in hand, but our office is also very convenient to pick up tickets right before the game, since we are just two blocks away from the Metrodome, on the corner of Washington and Chicago Ave.

Yo Vikings fans!! We've got some great news that you've probably been waiting to hear. Ticket King has lowered our entire inventory of Minnesota Vikings vs. Packers tickets!!! We have upper level tickets starting at only $135 and lower levels starting at just $245 each. These prices are way lower than they were a few weeks ago as you would know if you've been watching the prices. Now would definitely be the best time to buy because these tickets have been flying out the door since the price drop. You will not find a better deal anywhere else!

Also, remember to look for the tickets with *RED STARS* next to them to ensure you are getting the best internet price possible! Those indicate the tickets we own, so you will never get charged any additional fees.

Minnesota Wild vs New York Rangers Tickets

The Minnesota Wild will host the New York Rangers on Friday, October 30; the day before Halloween. This game will be huge! Not only because of the date, but also because Marian Gaborik will be playing with the New York Rangers! Marian Gaborik underwent hip surgery last January and returned in March to play with the Rangers. In July, he signed a 5 year contract with the New York Rangers after talks with the Minnesota Wild ended in a stalemate. If you'd like to see him play against the team he once belonged to, get your Minnesota Wild tickets today before they're gone!

Twins vs Boston Red Sox Tickets

The Minnesota Twins will begin their 2010 season in the brand new Target Field. The opening game will be held on April 12 at 3:10 PM against the Boston Red Sox. Of course Ticket King has a great selection of Minnesota Twins tickets for the home opener but please do keep in mind that the opening games always sell out and I think these will go even faster than usual. They're already a hot commodity! If you're not looking to spend big bucks on the first game, I would suggest attending the second or third games or even waiting for a different series. You might be thinking that tickets for next season's games are going to be expensive but they're actually very affordable. Check them out and get yours today while the selection is at it's best! GO TWINS!!!!

Minnesota Twins Target Field Tickets

Good news Twins fans!! The 2010 Minnesota Twins schedule has officially been released! That means Minnesota Twins tickets for next season at the brand new Target Field are now available to purchase! I would definitely suggest getting your tickets now while the availability and selection is at it's best. The opening game on Monday, April 12th will be against the Boston Red Sox. The opening games are always really popular and will definitely sell out, especially since this one is in a brand new outdoor field! We have some great deals on Twins tickets right now so get them while they're hot! GO TWINS!!!

Minnesota Twins vs Detroit Tigers Tickets

The Minnesota Twins will host the Detroit Tigers at the Metrodome in a series that could potentially be very meaningful. The weekend series runs from this Friday, September 18th through Sunday the 20th. At this point, the Minnesota Twins are only 4.5 games out of first place! If the Twins win the game today against the Cleveland Indians, we will be raising ticket prices to reflect the increasing demand for the tickets. If you would like to attend one of these games, I would suggest buying your Minnesota Twins tickets today before the prices go up!

Free TCF Bank Stadium Tours

The University of Minnesota will open the gates of the brand-spankin-new TCF Bank Stadium the day after the Minnesota Gophers welcome the Wisconsin Badgers into the new stadium. On Sunday, October 4th, from 1 to 4 PM, the University will be holding FREE public tours of the new stadium and an open house. The tours and open house will kick-off the start of homecoming week events leading up to the Gopher vs. Purdue game on October 10th. During the tours, fans will be able to walk on the field, check out the Gopher locker room and sit in the stadium seats. These tours will be the only time the locker room at TCF Bank Stadium will be open to the public so now is your chance!

Don't forget- Ticket King has the best selection and the best prices on Minnesota Gopher tickets around! Get yours today while the selection is at it's best!

Vikings vs Seahawks Tickets

On Sunday, November 22, the Minnesota Vikings will host the Seattle Seahawks at the Metrodome for the Vikings 5th home game. This game is currently our least expensive one, with upper level corner tickets starting at only $35 and lower level corners starting at $100 each. This game would be a great date idea or even fun for the whole family- especially if you've never been to a Vikings game before! We even have VIP parking passes for sale (for every Vikings game) that allows you to park with the players and coaches! I've used one before and let me tell you- they are SWEET! You really do feel like a VIP and you don't have to worry about walking 5 blocks to your car after the game. Get your cheap Vikings tickets today before they're gone!

Also, please keep in mind that each time the Vikings win a game, ticket prices usually will increase along with the demand for them.

Wild vs Blue Jacket Tickets

Wow! Get this!

Ticket King has Minnesota Wild tickets for the first preseason home game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday, September 18th beginning at only $10 each!!! The location of the $10 seats would be the second row of the upper level on the players bench side by the face-off circle. This is such a great deal that I am positive these tickets won't last long. If you've never been to a Minnesota Wild game before, this is your chance to see what they're all about! I wasn't very into hockey before I went to my first Wild game but I must admit, they are VERY exciting! This game is probably our least-expensive one so I would suggest getting your tickets now before the good ones are gone.

Also remember that the Minnesota Wild play the Columbus Blue Jackets on a few different occasions this season. There is regular season home game on Tuesday, December 15th and another on Saturday, January 23rd. Don't miss them!


Minnesota Gophers vs Purdue Tickets

Saturday, October 10th is going to be a big day for the Minnesota Gophers! At 11am, the Minnesota Gophers will host the Purdue Boilermakers at their new TCF Bank stadium for their homecoming game! We have been flying through our inventory of Minnesota Gopher tickets so much that we're considering raising the prices for this game. To guarantee you get the best deal on tickets, I would buy now before the prices go up!

Garrison Keillor Tickets Fitzgerald Theater

Ticket King is actually running pretty low on Garrison Keillor tickets for the show at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul. I think his shows will be very close to sold-out, being that the Fitzgerald is a smaller theater for such a popular guy. It's also got a nice intimate feel to it that makes you feel a little closer to the performer. Our remaining tickets currently start at just $80 each and we do have a variety of tickets left for the Saturday performances that run through October 24th. Be sure to check out our tickets and buy them before the good ones are gone- these won't last much longer!

TCF Bank Stadium Parking

With the first Gopher game of the year quickly approaching us, I thought I would share some information on parking for the brand new TCF Bank Stadium. Since most of us haven't been there yet, there are a few things you should know.

First off, please keep in mind that parking
will be difficult to come by, being that the stadium holds so many people and parking around the University is already difficult to come by. Also, remember that there are several parking lots surrounding the new stadium but you must be a season ticket-holder to use any of the parking lots on the east side of the University- unless you buy one from Ticket King, that is. We currently own parking passes to the following lots: 33, 37 and 58. Cheaper options include the Oak Street Ramp or the 4th Street Ramp. We also have passes for the Maroon Lot, located right next to the TCF Bank Stadium and is one of the few lots that allow tailgating. Just remember that we only have a few of these passes for each game, so get your TCF Bank Stadium parking passes today before they're gone!

Minnesota Vikings vs Detroit Lions Tickets

On Sunday, November 15th, the Minnesota Vikings will host the Detroit Lions at the Metrodome for their 4th home game of the season. Our Detroit Lions vs. Minnesota Vikings tickets for this game are by-far the cheapest Vikings tickets we're selling this season. Now would be the best time to buy since the season hasn't started yet and prices could go up if the Vikings play well in the beginning of the season. Our ticket prices for this game currently start at only $35 for upper level tickets in the corner, or $100 each for lower level corner tickets. Get yours today before the prices go up!

Gophers vs Michigan State Tickets

This year the Minnesota Golden Gophers play the Michigan State Spartans on Halloween at the brand new TCF Bank Stadium. This will be an evening game, beginning at 7pm. I think this would be an awesome way to spend the early part of your Halloween evening! Especially since it's in the Gophers brand new stadium and the game is at night, unlike most Gopher football games. Prices for this game currently start at only $80 each for upper level tickets or $85 for lower levels. These prices are very reasonable but remember that if the Gophers win their first couple games, prices will increase along with the demand for tickets. If you would like to attend the game on October 31st, I would suggest getting your Minnesota Gopher tickets today before the prices go up!

Owl City Tickets at the Cabooze

Owl City will be coming to the Cabooze on Saturday, September 26th. The last time Owl City was in the Twin Cities, the show was held at the Varsity Theater and sold out pretty quickly! The Cabooze is an even smaller venue, with a capacity of about 800, so I know these tickets will go quick. As a matter of fact, if this show isn't sold out already, I'll be surprised. The Cabooze is a pretty small venue for Owl City, being how popular he is right now. If you would like to attend the show, get your Owl City tickets before they're sold out! These will NOT last very long!

Cheap Gophers Illinois Tickets

Great news Gopher fans!

If you haven't got your Minnesota Golden Gopher tickets to any of the football games this season, Ticket King has very reasonably priced seats for the Gophers vs. Illinois Fighting Illini game on Saturday, November 7th. Ticket prices currently start at only $75 per ticket for upper OR lower level tickets at the Gophers brand new TCF Bank Stadium. This is definitely the most affordable game to attend this football season. I would definitely recommend getting your tickets now though, while the selection is at it's best and the prices are at their lowest. If the Gophers begin the season playing really well, ticket prices will definitely increase so please keep that it mind. GO GOPHERS!!!

Local Events This Weekend

Now that it's officially September, I think it's safe to say that summer is sadly coming to an end very soon. We won't have too many more warm weekends so now would be the time to get out there and enjoy it, especially since there are so many things going on this weekend.

The Minnesota State Fair only goes through Labor Day so if you haven't gone yet, you're missing out! There are a number of concerts taking place there including Casting Crowns tonight; Garrison Keillor tomorrow night; REO Speedwagon and Styx on Saturday night; and lastly Jeff Dunham on Monday night.

Other events this weekend include the Vikings vs. Cowboys game tomorrow night, WWE at the Xcel and Mark Mallman at First Avenue on Saturday. Mary Poppins performances run throughout the weekend as well.

Gophers vs. Air Force Tickets

The very first game of the Minnesota Golden Gophers football 2009-2010 season is coming up fast at only 10 days away, when they host the Air Force Falcons in their brand new home stadium. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if the prices for our Gopher football tickets increased slightly for this game. Our inventory is beginning to run low but the demand for tickets is definitely still there. If you still haven't bought your tickets yet but want to attend the game, I would suggest buying them now before the price goes up!
